Stoke guide to take you to the best bars and lead you through the madness.
15 March: Arrive in Kilkenny. Your guide will be at the hostel waiting for you. We’ll check out some bars tonight on a welcome pub crawl if you choose or have an early night to prepare yourself for the antics of tomorrow.
16 March: Today’s the day, St Patrick’s Day! We’ll wake up early for a hearty breakfast before jumping on the private bus to Dublin and claiming a prime spot for the famous parade. We’ll check out some pubs, down some Guinness before jumping on the bus and carrying on the party in Kilkenny. We’ll experience some authentic Paddy’s Day celebrations in our favourite bars in the town and taking in some of the local St Patrick’s Day Music festival.
17 March: Wake up slow, yesterday was a big day! Refuel for breakfast and take some free time this morning to explore the city. This afternoon we’ll meet for a late lunch/early dinner at the oldest tavern in Kilkenny with complementary Guinness and Irish liquor. Tonight we can hit the town on last time.
18 March: We should have well and truly excelled ourselves at partying Irish-style and we could possibly be broken. We’ll struggle our way through goodbyes, but not before we’ve swapped Facebooks and photos and planned our next trip with Stoke Travel!
